employment
n.
A job; the act of employing.

The Essential Law Dictionary. — Sphinx Publishing, An imprint of Sourcebooks, Inc. . 2008.


employment
the relationship formerly known as master and servant, a contract such as that of a chauffeur who sells his service. It can be used for the contractor who enters a contract to provide services, such as a taxi driver. Much modern employment law deals with statutory rights in relation to employment, and its focus on the 'servant' type of employment is often seen when it refers to 'worker'. Company directors are not, for example, necessarily employees but may be employed by the company. Partners are not employees of the partnership. See employers' liability; employee share scheme.
